Ironman Day was awesome, as always. Got up at 5:30? to see the race start. (We live only a block away but wanted a good seat, especially since Dr. Z. can't stand for long periods of time due to his knees and back.) As most of you probably know, we had an unprecedented hellacious thunderstorm during the swim. Like, I don't even know what to say to everyone - we don't GET thunderstorms around here, and never in the MORNING. Truly a freak of weather.
After a brief rest, it was time to head up to do bike escort for lead runners. I was given second place female, and ended up escorting the lovely Kim Schwawenbauer.
|And yes, that jersey is HUGE on me. I asked for an XS and got a S.|
Anyway, it was up early again the next day to sign up for 2015. It's definitely scarier the second time because I know what I'm getting myself into.

I really wish I had more to say. Katie's blog has given me tons to think about lately, but nothing I'm ready to vomit up here quite yet. Hell, I'm not even sure I could verbalize it to myself yet.
